We'll eat the traditional stuff on Friday, although we'll probably just put it all out on the kitchen island and help ourselves, and skip the fancy dining room party of the ritual.
Also, while ordering chicken at a Popeye's chicken drive-through the other day, I saw that Popeye's is selling Cajun-seasoned whole turkeys this year. I am TOTALLY going to get one. I love all the side dishes, but I've always found turkey to be bland and not worth the all-day cooking effort. Plus, handling the raw turkey and even having to LOOK at the neck and giblets makes me queasy for the rest of the day. So I'm pretty enthused about this plan!
On the one hand, I'm a little bit sad about not dragging out the china, crystal and silver for their annual outing/dust removal, but on the other hand, I feel quite cheery about not having to wash them (both before and after!)
Whatcha gonna do for the big day, Broards?
